Rangers

Allan McGregor is an “amazing” goalkeeper and his dedication to Rangers is “very unusual” in the best possible sense. 

That is according to ex-Premier League shot-stopper Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively to Football Insider after Rangers fans voted McGregor their Player of the Year.

McGregor, 39, has enjoyed a remarkable season between the sticks for Steven Gerrard’s side.

As detailed by Rangers’ website, he smashed the Scottish clean sheet record and the British record for the fewest league goals conceded at home.

McGregor signed a new deal in early April – as forecast by Football Insider in March – committing him to one more season at Ibrox.

“It’s very unusual for a player to be that dedicated,” Kenny told Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams.

“Loyalty these days is hard to come by. He’s had two spells there [at Rangers]. To be there, come down to the Premier League where he did well and then go back, it shows how committed he is.

“You don’t see that too much in this day and age. He’s such an amazing pro and I bet he’s amazing to have around.

“I’d love to train with someone like him because he comes across as very dedicated in his job. To be playing at a top level at 39 proves that.”

McGregor conceded just 13 goals in the league as Rangers breezed their way to an undefeated season and first Premiership title in a decade.

He featured 42 times across the campaign, taking his total Rangers appearances to 393.
